Abstract:Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities are being successfully used for acceleration of charged particle beams worldwide. The application of the SRF cavities for manipulation of the beam properties in the transverse direction finds more and more applications. The use of superconducting (SC)… more
Abstract:The majority of radioisotopes used in the United States today come from foreign suppliers or are generated parasitically in large government accelerators and reactors. Both of these restrictions limit the availability of radioisotopes, especially short lived ones, and discourages the development… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
